Laura Loves...Rebecca Woods

I see so many beautiful canvases come across my desk that sometimes it's hard to pick a favorite one. I do know one of my most LOVED designers though; Rebecca Woods!

She has a wide range of designs; from large and complex projects to quick and small weekend stitching. There really is something for everyone and if you like her smaller canvases, you can work your way up to some of the larger ones. 

One of the things I really LOVE about these larger pieces is the attention to detail and vibrant colors! These Easter, Halloween, and Christmas pieces are just a few examples of the larger projects that I LOVE!

If you are looking for a smaller project, I would LOVE to recommend something like this little moose

One other thing that I LOVE about Rebecca Woods are her Christmas designs.  She offers both full stockings and smaller stocking cuffs (to add to your own stocking). How much would your family LOVE seeing either of these on your mantel?

If you are looking for something other than holiday pieces, I LOVE that she has those too! She has this darling little house ornament.

She really such a well rounded designer and I think that's what I LOVE the most.

Lots of Love,

Laura Loves...Watermelon Shooters

I have found the PERFECT summer drink! While looking online for some fresh ideas for a backyard BBQ I came across this video from the Food Network.

Watermelon shot glasses!! 

It's taking the quintessential summer food and then making it really fun and I LOVE it! The video shows you how to cut your melon and use a small scoop to make room for the liquid. Such a simple yet brilliant idea. We LOVE that around here.

Really you could use almost any alcohol in these. I happen to LOVE coconut rum, so that's what we used. Coconut is so tropical that it really fit our summer theme. I imagine this would be good with a vanilla or even a blackberry rum as well.

I LOVED how these tasted and I LOVED being able to present my guests with such a unique and fun drink. Added bonus that I LOVED? Fewer dishes to wash at the end of the night!

Laura Loves...Kathy Schenkel Carrots!

What is Laura Loving these days??

These carrot canvases from {Kathy Schenkel} are the prefect thing this time of year!

I really LOVE that the different designs and animals don't make them Easter specific. Summer is garden season so I LOVE that you can use these for two seasons!

Stitch just one...

Or stitch a few and make a 'fresh bunch' of carrots to display in your home. 

They might even inspire the littler person in your life to eat more veggies.

They are super quick to stitch up! I LOVE quick little projects and these fit the bill perfectly. I also LOVE the bright colors, they are very cheerful to stitch!

If you just really LOVE carrots, you can pick up this needle mag to complete your project. 

As always, we'd LOVE to make a kit for you. Let us know if we can pull the fibers you need to make this your next weekend project.
